2nd Call for Papers, Mediterranean Morphology Meeting

The 10th Mediterranean Morphology Meeting (MMM10) will take place at
the University of Haifa (Israel), September 7-10, 2015.

The theme of the conference will be:

“Quo vadis morphology? Grammar, cognition and computation”

MMM celebrates its 10th meeting with a look at the present and future
of morphology. How has the field evolved in recent years? Where do we
stand now? And, most importantly, Where do we go from here? We welcome
contributions that explore new empirical and methodological directions
in morphology, especially in the following domains:

- Morphology and Grammar
- Morphology and Cognition
- Morphology and Computation

The aim of these meetings is to bring together linguists who work on
morphology in an informal setting which guarantees maximal interaction
between researchers, and gives young linguists an opportunity to
present their work at a conference of moderate size where fruitful
contacts with senior linguists can be established. The traditional
emphasis on morphology of European languages is expanded in this 10th
anniversary meeting to also include local languages of Israel as well
as sign languages, and will emphasize future directions in morphology,
such as morphology and cognition, and computational approaches.

Invited Speakers:

Stephen R. Anderson (Yale University)
Mark Aronoff (Stony Brook University)
Ray Jackendoff (Tufts University)

Program Outline:

September 7, afternoon: Workshop on languages in Israel, including
sign languages
